1. A visual overview of the Panasonic Lumix Link v2.1.25 App for iPhone/ipad and Android on the new Panasonic GH3 camera. All in all this new Lumix Link App update is fabulous.
    Update: iphone 5 users are experiencing problems with this new Lumix Link software for the GH3. No doubt there will be a rapid turnaround to fix this.

    What we need in the next update:
    1. Viewing on phone enabled when movie recording and NOT covered by the countdown dialog.
    2. The ability to Zoom, change ISO, etc from phone whilst recording.
    3. Timecode over Wi-Fi or open source the API so developers can improve on applications.

  2. This video is about the basic profiles and a demonstration that you can now change ISO whilst recording.

    Part 2 coming shortly demonstrates the artistic creative modes & Scene (SCN) modes - settings suggested by Panasonic that work well with the main profiles.

  3. A daytime run thru of the main picture scenes/(profiles), Scene Guides and Creative Control. Many of these effects are to be found on other Lumix cameras - the GH3 just happens to make them look so much better with the availability of high bitrates.

    Shot in the UK rain, handheld and cold, I think I'm excused for the rather hasty collection of wide 'fixed' shots but it gives you a rough idea of what 'style' you can expect of your pictures in-camera, without the grading.

    Next Video up: we'll be looking to make use of the Creative Control modes and some of the scene guides with their intended subject matter.

  4. A quick look at some of the slow motion modes on the new Panasonic GH3.

    Including tests on 720p50, 1080p50, 1080p24/25 and 'Frame Rate' modes 40%, 48%, 80%, 160% and 300% - I forgot to record 300% ! Note: Only 1080p24 FHD (IPB) works with 'Frame Rate' Modes..

    Whilst recording this I did notice fast ISO changing down from the range to 200 ISO at 200 ISO produced macro blocking for the first few seconds before settling. However, it was at night with a helluva lot of lights.

    Lens X 12-35mm f2.8 ASPH. No Sound.

  5. NOTE: Higher encode version at vimeo.com/54933257 and youtube.com/watch?v=3C1o9_sB87Y

    300mb - 5000Kbps - mpegstreamclip transcode B version. Notice the reds are over saturated in this encode.

    Some more scene testing and slow-motion conforming on a 1080p timeline. This was output as 9Gb ProRes 422 file and transcoded once more to mp4 using mpegstreamclip at 5000Kbps ceiling mode (300Mb file) as FCPX kept failing to upload the estimated 1.5Gb h264 file direct to Vimeo. I will endeavour to keep trying to upload the original as the colour differences are quite large!

    This was shot at one of Brighton's famous lanes, Kensington Gardens.

    A test of the GH3 with a 70-200 Canon L lens which effectively doubles for M43 (140-400m) at f2.8 (wide-open on the adapter), 200ISO, 100 shutter.
